This week we are taking the Free Weekly Korean Language & Cultural Exchange on the road for a tour (견학) of MK Wellness Spa in the Mosaic District (a short walk from the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro Station). This is a new Korean sauna, spa, and health store that will be opening soon.
We will have our regular language exchange in their showroom and take turns using the sauna. It's a special sauna using clay imported from Korea and gold plated tiles. This combination raises the temperature more than a standard sauna.
If you plan to use the sauna, please bring a towel and a change of lightweight gym clothes (loose fitting t-shirt and shorts). Small groups will take turns of about 10 to 15 minutes each, depending on how many are interested in using the sauna. The rest of us will continue with the language and cultural exchange in the front room. Feel free to bring your own study materials or you can often share with someone else.
Light snacks and drinks will be provided and feel free to bring your own. After the meetup we will continue our tour at Manna BBQ (http://www.meetup.com/koreans/events/197149172/) where David has arranged a 15% discount and some other extras.
Don't forget, the next weekend is KORUS Festival (http://www.meetup.com/koreans/events/173677272/) (Sept 19 - 21), so many of us will be out at Bull Run Park on Sunday. We plan to be back at the bakery on September 28th.
